The reduced number of double crossover progeny, relative to the expected number, is called interference and it interference can be calculated as follows. can BIS101­001, Spring 2013—Genes and Gene Expression, R.L.

It is believed that interference is due to a regulatory process It that limits the number of exchanges that can occur in a cell or along a pair of homologous chromosomes. along * Can be calculated using %, frequency or number of dc BIS101­001, Spring 2013—Genes and Gene Expression, R.L.
